Details:
Matt choked down 2.70 quarter-pound* hot dogs with buns from the Sam's Club snack bar. Attention all hotdog flavor lovers: Sam's Club really packs the hotdog flavoring into their quarter-pound Snack Bar hot dogs. Matt tried drowning out that overpowering taste with ketchup, relish, and freshly-cut onions. Apparently, you cannot cover up their potent hotdog taste by conventional means; it is too hotdog-y. After almost straining his swallow-muscles on the extra-dry hotdog buns, Matt called it quits after 0.675 pounds* of the hooves, cured-and-smoked skeletal muscle, and up to 3.5% non-meat binders and extenders that Sam whips up into their scrumptious batches of hot dogs.
* - pre-cooked weight;   ingredient info from the USDA FSIS.
Did not achieve goal! Matt was trying to down six (6) quarter-pound hot dogs with buns. The high-quality (and concentration) of hot dog flavoring ended up biting him, stopping him well short of the goal. If he decides to try again, Matt plans to employ the "walking the dog"-, the "in the dog-house"-, and the "dog in a bathtub" techniques to conquer the man's-best-friend of snack bar foods, hot dogs.

Matt gulped down thirty-five (35) ounces of sweetened applesauce in seventeen (17) minutes. Quick math: 2.25 pounds. Matt was a bit unsure going into the event after the previous day's trial run in which he hurled the healthy treat about fifteen seconds after starting. He fared far better in the actual event, slugging down swig after swig of the slightly lumpy, room temperate side dish without much threat of blowing sauce. As this was not a premium brand of sauce, it was a bit less smooth and a bit more "vomity" in texture. One spectator noted that the "stares" started at about the 7 minute mark -- Matt got the 100 yard stare. After finishing up the apple squeezin's with only a slight delay, he went out to a celebratory lunch. He ate four (4) of the nacho chips that he ordered. What a celebration.
Did not achieve goal! Matt was attempting to devour the 35 ounces of apply goodness in 16 minutes. So close, Johnny Appleseed.

Details:
Matt consumed 967 Tic Tac breath mints in one hour. He only chewed approximately forty (40) of the mints, downing the rest whole. There were 240 of the Fresh Mint variety, and 727 of the Orange Mint variety. Quotes: "Something is sliding through me". One near-hoark event included a Gallagher-like spraying of an assistant with water.
Did not achieve goal! Matt was attempting to manhandle one thousand (1000) Tic Tac mints. Time expired before he could eat the last 33 mints. At least his breath was reasonably fresh. Matt experienced an orange Technicolor yawn a bit later.
